Is there any reason why GC suppliers give you a jumper lead for you to power the GC from the Hard Drive power supply? The PSU on my PC has about 3 or 4 spare power connectors, can I use one of these spare ones?
Yes there is a reason - it's to provide more power than is available throught the AGP slot. And yes, you use one of the spare connections from your power supply.
Thanks DieSse,I realised the the GC needed more power, I was just querying whether I could use the spare power connectors.
OK - all the power connectors are identical. It's actually marginally better practice to use a spare one rather than put an extra adapter in one already going to a drive, if that's what you meant.
Yes that it.I just wondered if the HD lead carried more power or something. I didn't think it, did but just thought I'd check.Thanks for the help
No its just in case you don't have enough leads!!
